Arts and Culture in Lane Cove

Council prides itself on nurturing a community rich in culture with a unique identity. Each year Council develops events, works with community organisations and supports initiatives that strengthen the culture and creative expression within Lane Cove.

A number of the actions identified in Council's annual Operational Plan reflect the strategic Cultural Plan developed in partnership with the community in 1994. Council has recently adopted a revised plan following its successful work in embedding arts, culture and cultural diversity into Lane Cove's practices for more than 10 years.

Lane Cove Art Award 2020

Unfortunately this year’s Lane Cove Art Award has been postponed. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes with dedicated volunteers from Lane Cove Art Society helping to receive and coordinate artworks and help to deliver a popular opening night. With Sydney still in a critical phase of COVID-19 the difficult decision has been made not to host the Award later this month. Entry fees are being returned to any entrants who already submitted their application and artists can register their interest by emailing to be notified of the next Award date. Council supports this decision and thanks Lane Cove Art Society for their ongoing involvement in this signature event on our annual calendar.
